The all new Duke PT 16 (DIN 6-16) combines the performance of a Jester with comfortable uphill properties of a pin binding. An absolute highlight is the innovative Ride & Hike toe. For walking mode the upper part is simply unlocked and tilted forward, uncovering the pin binding. To save swing weight the upper jaw part can be taken off and stored in the backpack. The multi functional Lock & Walk unit automatically locks the brakes and provides a 10° climbing aid. For downhill mode the front jaw section is clicked back onto the base plate being quadruple secured by the Auto Quad Lock technology. Now the toe piece works just like an alpine toe with all of its advantages! The heel is the latest generation of lightweight Inter Pivot heels. The low height of 27 mm allows for direct power transmission and fast edge changes. Thanks to Sole.ID all Duke PT are compatible to alpine, touring and GripWalk boots.

DIN, ISO, and Boot/Binding Compatibility
The DIN (Deutsches Institut für Normung) scale on your bindings is the ski industries’ adjustment range for the release force settings on your skis’ bindings. This number will be determined by your age, weight, height, boot sole length, and your skier type (not always correlating with your skier ‘ability’). This setting should always be adjusted by a qualified technician after a visual/tactile inspection and function test.
Alpine Touring (A/T) boots soles have a different shape, specified by ISO 9523. The lugs on our Touring boots will also have Dynafit ‘Tech’ inserts. This sole/lug is designed to work with our A/T bindings. Also, permitting the boots are equipped with Alpine or GRIPWALK soles (ISO 9523), they will be compatible with most contemporary Alpine DIN Bindings.
Our A/T bindings will be compatible with ISO 9523 boot soles and lugs with Dynafit ‘Tech’ inserts.
Marker SOLE.ID Bindings are compatible with Alpine (ISO 5355), GRIPWALK, and Touring (ISO 9523) soles.
Wear and tear on your boots' soles can and will affect the release and retention of your binding/boot system. Often, these can be replaced by a dealer.
*If you’re unsure if your boots and bindings are compatible, please have a qualified technician give them a tactile and visual inspection.
For your brakes to function correctly and prevent damage to your skis and bindings, your brake width needs to be at least as wide as the waist of your ski. For example, if you have a ski that has a waist of 96mm, an appropriate brake width could be 100mm. Never choose a brake that is more than 15mm wider than the waist of your ski. Often, wider OEM brakes can be purchased for your powder skis. Always have a qualified technician perform this work.
